Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Important: Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2013:1028-01
Product: Fuse Enterprise Middleware
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1028.html

Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 roll up patch 1, which fixes multiple security
issues and various bugs, is now available from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
Fuse ESB Enterprise, based on Apache ServiceMix, provides an integration
This release of Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 roll up patch 1 is an update to
Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 and includes bug fixes. Refer to the readme file
included with the patch files for information about the bug fixes.
The following security issues are also fixed with this release:
XML encryption backwards compatibility attacks were found against various
frameworks, including Apache CXF. An attacker could force a server to use
insecure, legacy cryptosystems, even when secure cryptosystems were enabled
on endpoints. By forcing the use of legacy cryptosystems, flaws such as
CVE-2011-1096 and CVE-2011-2487 would be exposed, allowing plain text to be
recovered from cryptograms and symmetric keys. (CVE-2012-5575)
Note: Automatic checks to prevent CVE-2012-5575 are only run when
WS-SecurityPolicy is used to enforce security requirements. It is best
practice to use WS-SecurityPolicy to enforce security requirements.
A flaw in JRuby's JSON gem allowed remote attacks by creating different
types of malicious objects. For example, it could initiate a denial of
service attack through resource consumption by using a JSON document to
create arbitrary Ruby symbols, which were never garbage collected. It could
also be exploited to create internal objects which could allow a SQL
injection attack. (CVE-2013-0269)
It was discovered that JRuby's REXML library did not properly restrict XML
entity expansion. An attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of
service by tricking a Ruby application using REXML to read text nodes from
specially-crafted XML content, which will result in REXML consuming large
amounts of system memory. (CVE-2013-1821)
Multiple denial of service flaws were found in the way the Apache CXF
StAX parser implementation processed certain XML files. If a web service
utilized the StAX parser, a remote attacker could provide a
specially-crafted XML file that, when processed, would lead to excessive
CPU and memory consumption. (CVE-2013-2160)
Note: Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 ships JRuby as part of the camel-ruby
component, which allows users to define Camel routes in Ruby. The default
use of JRuby in Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 does not appear to expose either
CVE-2013-0269 or CVE-2013-1821. If the version of JRuby shipped with Fuse
ESB Enterprise 7.1.0 was used to build a custom application, then these
flaws could be exposed.
